Steve Kerr 'playing with house money' in World Series bet with Steph Curry

Steve Kerr is a big Dodgers fan.

Steph Curry is a big Red Sox fan.

The Red Sox will host the Dodgers on Tuesday night in Game 1 of the World Series, and Warriors coach and star player do have a bet on the outcome, as The Athletic's Anthony Slater chronicled:

Work logistics won’t allow them to attend in person. But both will be locked in from afar, already trading some trash talk, agreeing on a wager — “Can’t reveal the stakes,” Kerr said

Kerr spoke with Damon Bruce on 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and once again declined to share specifics of the agreement between he and Curry.

Golden State's head coach did, however, reveal that he is "playing with some house money" because he won a bet with Kevon Looney based on the result of the NLCS.

Looney grew up in Milwaukee, and the Dodgers beat the Brewers in seven games to advance to the Fall Classic.

Note to all San Francisco Giants fans out there -- don't be mad at Kerr for his allegiance to the Dodgers. The guy grew up in Southern California and loves baseball. End of story.

Besides, as he told Bruce -- the Warriors have won three NBA championships over the last four years, so he's doing something right ...

Warriors GM Bob Myers breaks down what Marquese Chriss brings to team

Warriors GM Bob Myers breaks down what Marquese Chriss brings to team

Marquese Chriss hasn't wasted any time adjusting to the Warriors after being acquired in October.

"He's done a nice job, he's played in the five -- I don't think he's played a ton of five, screen-setting, just the littlest things," general manager Bob Myers told NBC Sports Bay Area's Bob Fitzgerald and Kelenna Azubuike during Friday's Warriors-Lakers telecast. "Changing his angle on the screens, he's learned to play off these guys."

"Sometimes you need a bit of a wakeup call to just start doing the little things."

The little things the big man has been working on stretch beyond his playing ability. Young Chriss, at just 22 years old, has already been on four teams in three years if you include the Dubs.

When he was brought in, he was viewed as someone to not only make an impact now but down the line.

The team hadn't had a high draft pick in several years and to get someone of his age and caliber is the perfect addition to the roster as Kerr explained after acquiring Chriss

Chriss looks forward to making a comeback after being plagued with a history of injuries. And the Warriors appear to be happy with the gamble they took. But time will tell.

Warriors waive three players as regular-season roster starts taking shape

Warriors waive three players as regular-season roster starts taking shape

The Warriors’ regular-season roster is beginning to take shape.

Golden State announced on Saturday morning that they waived Andrew Harrison, Kavion Pippen, and Juan Toscano-Anderson.

The NBA preseason came to a close Friday night for the Warriors at Chase Center, as they beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 124-103. Golden State avenged three losses earlier in the preseason to LeBron James and the Lakers.

Harrison was signed to a training camp deal in early September, and he was on his fifth NBA team in just three seasons.

Pippen was brought in for depth after the Warriors’ frontcourt was plagued with injuries, and he scored 2.5 points per game in four preseason appearances with Golden State. Pippen is the nephew of NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen.

Toscano-Anderson is an Oakland native who has had quite a basketball odyssey, playing several professional seasons in Mexico before spending most of last season with the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League.

The regular season opens up for the Warriors and Chase Center on Thursday when Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers come to town.
